Tottenham Needs To Rediscover Their Cutting Edge — Jose Mourinho Speaks

Jose Mourinho has urged his Tottenham side to rediscover their cutting edge ahead of this weekend’s North London derby against Arsenal, live on Sky Sports.

Despite possessing an array of attacking talent, lead by former Golden Boot winner Harry Kane, Spurs failed to register a single shot on target against Bournemouth as they were held to a goalless draw on Thursday evening.

In contrast, Tottenham have kept three clean sheets in their last five outings, with Mourinho readily admitting the side need to strike the right balance at both ends of the pitch.

We want to keep our defensive organisation as it is giving us good numbers but we’re not scoring enough goals,” Mourinho said.

We’re not being dangerous and attack-minded enough despite all the attacking players on the pitch.

“At the moment there is a contradiction between the amount of attacking players we have on the pitch and our production.

“We are arriving in good positions, we have good percentages of ball possession and spend the majority of the time in the opponent’s half.

“But there is no sharpness or objective – there’s too many touches, we’re not clear or aggressive or making sharp killer decisions.”
